When Alcatraz and Grandpa Smedry make a pilgrimage to the Free Kingdom city of Crystallia, the Smedry home base, Alcatraz is shocked to see that he is, in fact, a legend. When he was a baby he was stolen by the Evil Librarians, and his mother, a Librarian herself, was behind the whole scheme. Now, with his estranged father, who is acting indeed strange, Bastille, who has been stripped of her armor, and Grandpa Smedry, who is, as always, late to everything (that's his Talent), Alcatraz tries to save a city under siege. From whom? Why, the Librarians of course!

Tell us about yourself!
in the ending added by the audio book company the person says the next book is by Brian Sanderson!?! not sure how that made it to the audio.
5 stars is i love and i will read agani and again. 1 is i hate and i never want to hear about it ever again. YES = :))) - NO= :'(
I do like that there isn't much repeat of environment in this series, this one was finally based in the one of the 3 kingdoms and the way of life there is very interesting.
Brandon Sanderson shows how funny he can get in this series, and I do love those breaks between each chapter, they are really funny. and its ending is always funny.
You get to see how special and strong Alcatraz is in this book. and also what authority he has in these kingdoms.
Really enjoyed and laughed a lot.. beware food and drinks while listening to it.
Say something about yourself!
The fun of this does not stop but that is what makes it so enjoyable.
If you've read the first two books you know about the annoying interuptions from the narrator. It can funny to the right person. I'd compare it to Lemony Snickett's style on steroids. so if you like fantasy and "A Series of Unfortunate Events" You'll love the Alcatraz series. Hats off to Ramon de Ocampo as well. A truly talented narrator.
